This interactive BBC story about the Dutch filmmaker that was killed by Muslim extremists for criticizing Islam really got me thinking. The American idea of a melting pot is not shared by many other countries. The people in this piece express different views about the situation in the Netherlands in the aftermath of the murder. How do think the views they express compare or contrast to the American ideal? What do you think of the situation? Is America really a melting pot? Should we be?
